A Writer’s Life Is Never Dull

There haven't been any writing reports for several days, because there has been very little writing going on. Tuesday night the galley proofs for the mass market paperback edition of The Span of Empire arrived from Baen Books, the publisher, and they need the corrections back by first thing Monday morning. So I've been rereading […]

Grantville Gazette 76 forthcoming

The editors of The Grantville Gazette will begin building the next issue, Volume 76, before too long.  I've been told I have two stories in this one:  a 1632 novelette starring Marla Linder and Franz Sylwester entitled Requiem for the Future, and a non-1632 fantasy story that will be featured in the Universe Annex section entitled Pendragon. These […]

Another Sale!

Sold a story to Grantville Gazette last night, a novella titled "Requiem for the Future". 12,000 words +. This one comes with a definite tissue warning. Tentatively scheduled for GG issue 76, I'm told. "Lex Talionis", the long story I sold them about six weeks ago, will probably go up in issue 75. Got to […]

1634 Essen Defiant

This is a new book that I co-wrote with Kim Mackey.  It's the sequel to his book Essen Steel, and should be released soon by Eric Flint's Ring of Fire Press.  I've seen the cover art for it, and I'm looking forward to seeing it on the cover of a real book.  As soon as […]

I'll have two works in Issue 74 in November – Episode Five of LFG, and a short little fun thing entitled Quelles Misérables. D
